When the new iPhone 6S was publicly available, many of Sony Xperia users are preparing to purchase one to replace the old phone. You know the operating system on both phones is totally different and make it hard to transfer data between them. However, if you decided to do it hand by hand, then it would take hours to complete the job, especially there are many important files on the old phone. So in here, I am going to introduce an automated content transfer tool called Phone to Phone Transfer, which can transfer content between different smartphones in 1 click.


In the following tutorial, we will show you how to transfer different types of data from Sony phone to iPhone, taking Sony Xperia Z3 and iPhone 6S as an example. In fact, the program supports a lot of smartphones and tablets, below is a short list of supported devices. The steps are the same, please don't worry about that.

Phone to Phone Transfer offers a very convenient content transfer method from Sony Xperia to iPhone. As far as I concerned, there is no such an app that would do better than this program. What's more, it is far more than a data transfer app because it has other powerful features you can use in further. Generally, with this program, you will save a lot of time on managing your mobile device. Data transfer can be finished in a few minutes. Never worry about losing data on your phone as the program has a built-in function for that. Want to protect your private data when selling the old one? No problem, you can use the erasing feature to permanently delete data on your phone.
